FAQ

How can I interact with the Astronode DevKit from my computer?

We provide a graphical user interface with the Astronode DevKit (Windows desktop application) and scripts for use with Mac and Linux.

What do I need the Wi-Fi DevKit Board for?

The Wi-Fi DevKit Board allows for accelerated testing thanks to a simulated satellite link, for instance in a typical indoor lab environment without free view to the sky. Find out more on the Astrocast 101 video “Simulate the satellite network“.

Can I install the Astronode DevKit outside?

Our DevKit features a weather-sealed plastic housing (IP67), enabling testing outside under real conditions.
